Luc Besson on ‘Transporter 3’

As writer and producer of theTransporter films, Luc Besson has a quite a task. He has to create outrageous action sequences, and then get them done on a budget. Plus, he has to deal with a star who wants to risk life and limb doing it all himself. 
 
"Stop doesn't come from him," Besson said. "The stop comes from us, where we say, 'No, you're not going to do this. All right, it's a double who's going to do it.' And then he's screaming, fighting, 'Come on, let me do it, I can do it.' No, you won't do it." 

One of Transporter 3's new action sequences has Frank Martin (Jason Statham) chasing his stolen car on a BMX bike. If he lets the thief get too far ahead, a proximity bomb will explode on Martin's wrist.
